May 31, 2019Great stay
This was our second stay at fir garth we really like the location and the house has everything we need for a large family. With each room having a onsuite and plenty of space to spread out. The children loved the toys and books. Great pubs and resturants close by. Only issue being the rubbish made a trip to the recyle place to find no bottle bank and black bin already full when we arrived. Maybe need to rethink a better method . Having said this lovely house and owner very easy to reach to answer questionsJun 20, 2018Wow...
We stayed at this fantastic cottage 7th to 10th May 2018. 9 of us celebrate a 60th birthday. Wow couldn’t have wanted for more. Bedrooms & ensuite were fab the main bathroom with roll top bath was really stylish. The main living room & kitchen had everything a group of this size could want. The balcony & view of the Langdales were stunning. Highly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to be impressed.

We had a fabulous holiday staying here. The location is great, the views from the balcony are breathtaking and the house is wonderful. We stayed with another family and the facilities are brilliant for this. Separate luxury en-suite facilities for 4 out of the 5 bedrooms, plus an extra bathroom with roll-top bath, meant that we were never waiting to get a shower in the morning! For sharing families this was perfect. The living room is beautiful with high ceilings and the photos don't really do it justice. The appliances in the kitchen were great, including a coffee machine for a freshly ground 'bean to cup' morning caffeine fix! There was everything we needed in the kitchen and we were able to easily cook many meals, not missing a single utensil. The 'snug' downstairs was great and also meant the children had some space to themselves to play in and watch tv or dvds. We hope to return here; having lived in the Lakes before, I don't think you can get a better location for proximity to amenities, whilst still feeling like you are truly escaping and enjoying the full Lake Dustrict experience. Thank you to Hannah who has been great throughout the whole booking process, right down to returning a cable we left in the house by mistake!Apr 26, 2017Amazing view!
We had a lovely week at Fir Garth, thanks. One of the nicest houses we have stayed at in Lakes over the last 20+years, with the most amazing view!Feb 27, 2017Beautiful cottage, stunning view of Langdale peaks
I booked this cottage for 11 people as a surprise weekend for my partner with all her friends and was very impressed. The house provided a perfect location for sociable weekend away with all our friends - the big open plan Kitchen/Diner/Living area was very spacious and was ideal for playing games and hosting a big group roast dinner around the authentic wooden dining table. Also, the kitchen was very well thought out and had the essential utensils needed to cook meals for 11 people (2 oven / grills was very handy indeed). Furthermore, the balcony leading out from the living area is a perfect space for enjoying a cuppa in the morning overlooking the stunning view down the valley. Would love to visit the cottage in the summer where late evening drinks could be enjoyed in this area!
The bedrooms were absolutely stunning! Each one was uniquely decorated with a different theme in each. 4/5 bedrooms had amazing en-suites (better than a 5* hotel) with the 5th bedroom being directly opposite a beautiful bathroom with a roll top bath (Nice after long walk on the fells).
The location was ideal, only 5 minute walk in to the village where there is a very well stocked convenience store. 15 minute walk and your in the beautiful village of Elterwater where you will find one of my favorite pubs the Britannia Inn. If you enjoy a more challenging walk there are some really nice hikes over the ridge in to the attractive village of Grasmere (1-2 hours) which are rewarded with some wonderful views at the top of the peaks.
Overall, everyone who stayed at the cottage thoroughly enjoyed their stay at Fir Garth and we will all be booking again next year. For large groups of friends or family I would highly recommend this cottage for a fun and enjoyable stay in the Lakes.Page 1 of 2:«‹12›»
